For a nation to grow socially and economically, the industrial sector has to be developed accordingly. For the industrial sector to make its contribution in nation building, the availability of infrastructural facilities should be given top priority. Power being one of the essential pre-requisites for nation building, the generation as well as efficient utilization should be given the top most priority in the power sector. Among the various kinds of equipments used in the industrial process, electric motors and illumination systems are the most widely used electrical equipments. The conservation of electrical energy has become quite significant in bridging the gap between availability and requirement of electrical power in today’s power crisis. One way of efficient utilization of electric power is by adopting various measures that lead to energy conservation. This paper outlines the importance of energy management with respect to the use of variable speed drives and illumination systems in addition to then statistics that show the facts and figures about the energy saving potential in our country.
